Flash And Supergirl Race Into Middle-School Novels

DC is taking two of their hit television heroes and creating middle-school level novels. EW is reporting that The Flash and Supergirl will star in a middle-grade novel each this fall.

Kicking it off on October 3 will be The Flash: Hocus Pocus by Barry Lyga (Bang) and takes place in a timeline where Flashpoint didn't happen. Barry Allen goes up against Hocus Pocus, a villain who can control the minds of Central City's citizens including the Scarlet Speedster himself. Good thing Barry has some friends.dcmiddle1


And then on November 7th Supergirl: Age of Atlantis by Jo Whittemore (The Silverskin Legacy) will be released. Kara Danvers and the DEO must deal with ordinary citizens of National City suddenly doing superhuman feats and how it ties to a humanoid sea creature that has suddenly arrived in the city.  dcmiddle2

Artist César Moreno has created the covers for both books.
